Our Review
Our supplier from Uji, in Japan recommended that we try this tea. It is made at the same time as high quality Sencha, however it is not considered acceptable as a Sencha. It represents a good value.
Dry Leaves These are large green leaves, mostly medium green but with some lighter colored stalks. This tea looks like Sencha, but larger. That is because it is the 'rejects' from the Sencha made in May.
Liquor The liquor is a pale light green, similar to most Senchas but light. The big leaves account for the lighter color.
Aroma Yanagi's aroma is a lighter version of most Sencha: spinach and nori seaweed with the backnotes of toast. This is contrast to a tea it might be confused with: Bancha. However Yanagi has none of the grassy aromas found in Bancha. This is because it is made in the Spring like senchas. Bancha is made later.
Caffeine Level Caffeinated
Body This a medium bodied green tea.
Flavors Steamed leaf vegetables like spinach or tatsoi with some roasted flavors.
Brewing Time 1 to 2 minutes
Brewing Temperature 160° F

Great
Average Review:

This fantastic tea is an excellent value. No grassiness. Very close to sencha only difference is slightly less body. I feel like I'm near the ocean when drinking this. It transports me to a different place. Pairs well with salty foods like potato chips.

Almost Sencha.
Average Review:

A little less brisk than the Japanese Sencha, but otherwise quite similar.
